well i got the last of my drains out yesterday, so i am officially “wireless”!! i’ve been feeling good and moving around fairly well, so i’m pleased with the progress. i found out that i will need to have at least part of my thyroid removed, since i have a cyst with “abnormal cells suspicious of thyroid cancer”. the biopsy could not tell for sure, so to be safe, they are just going to take it out. that surgery is april 28. i will need to stay overnight, or maybe even 2 or 3 nights…apparently they need to monitor my calcium levels and can’t let me leave until they are normal.

i’m hoping my surgery is late enough in the month, since as many of you know, my sister Jessica is pregnant and due April 15. we all are looking forward to some “good news” coming out of these upcoming hospital visits! :)
